"We welcome unwavering US support today, with the introduction of Chemical & Biological Weapons Sanctions in response to Russia’s use of a deadly nerve agent in Salisbury. The continued global response shows we will not stand & watch these horrific weapons be used without consequences."
As we reported earlier, President of the United States Donald Trump is going to implement a new package of sanctions because of the poisoning of the Skripals, the Russian citizens who reside in the UK.
Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in British Salisbury in March 2018. Then British PM Theresa May stated that Russia was responsible for that, and the investigation confirmed the use of the Novichok nerve agent produced in Russia.
